Product Description
**Please keep in mind, that there are several different approaches to teaching writing, and this is just one of them.

This item is for the student just being introduced to writing a response to literature essay or the teacher that is new to teaching the concept of Response to Literature, and would like a little guidance.

The organizer is set up to use with just about any fictional story. I generally print both of the organizer pages in the "combined" format of 2 pages on 1 to make it easier for the students. As I am reading, I have the students focus on filling out their organizer to the best of their ability, we then discuss the story together, to make sure that all the good ideas out there are being heard and shared. This organizer, then serves as their brainstorm.

The frame is very structured (3 paragraphs). There are blanks for the students to fill in with the information that they have gathered from reading or hearing a story. Underneath each blank, are phrases or words that are given as suggestions for the student to "plug-in" and use. For the personal response areas, the students are directed as to what their response should focus on.

*AGAIN THE FRAME IS VERY STRUCTURED....After the students have had the chance to work with the frame a few times and they are comfortable with the format, I start to ween them off of it, allowing for their own voices and personalities to shine through.
